    Two children in Santa Rosa were struck by a car as they went trick or treating Wednesday night, and were taken to the  hospital with moderate injuries, police said.

    The children are 10- and 4-years-old. Police said they were struck at 7:30 p.m. at West Eight Street and North Dutton Avenue streets by a driver, who remained on scene and was cooperative, police said.

    The children were with their parents in a crosswalk, and police said the adults tried to pull them back, but they darted across the street without them.

    Police said they do not suspect drugs or alcohol played a part in the accident.

    The Bay Area children weren't the only children to suffer Halloween accidents. In Southern California, an 11-year-old boy and woman were struck by a hit-and-run driver when they were trick-or-treating in Watts. Police found the silver Suzuki in that collision, but have not found the driver.
